Oesho and Afrasi,
I was born and grown up in Indonesia. In the Schools, we never heard about Alexander Hare ruled part of Kalimantan, nor Moluka. But then, here in the US, I learn that there were an independent "Chinese" Kingdom separate from China.
There was a study said that Hang Tuah, Indonesian and Malaysian Hero is Chinese decent. I guess the Indonesian history is inaccurate.

May I know the source of the book that stated the Alexander Hare once ruled Kalimantan? Sometime a book is different from the real history, sometime a teacher teached different then the real history, but there is no innacurate history.

Oesho

I presume you read my reply #17 above, which provides some historical details.
The most accessible literature is Pridmore's book: The Coins of the British Commonwealth of Nations, part 2, Asian Territories (London 1965), p239.
A Dutch translation of the Sultan's grant of land to Hare is published in the "Tijdschrift voor Indische Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde, Vol. XLVIII, Batavia 1906, and bears the date 24th Ramadan, AH1227 (1st October 1812).
